Operation Lifesaver Inc. (OLI) released its 2012 Annual Report, which reviews the organization’s accomplishments.

The activities detailed in OLI’s annual report include:

  • Celebrating its 40th anniversary with a leadership summit in Denver.
  • Producing safety education materials for rail commuters, new drivers, school bus drivers and Operation Lifesaver’s 50 state programs.
  • Working with the Federal Transit Administration and Federal Railroad Administration on grants for safety campaigns and other activities in cities and states around the U.S..
  • Initiating updates to the OLI volunteer education process.
  • Increasing Operation Lifesaver’s social media presence.


“While the last two years have brought changes in Operation Lifesaver’s message delivery model, educational activities and leadership,” President/CEO Joyce Rose said. “Our goal remains the same as it was 40 years ago: to reduce incidents, deaths and injuries at highway-rail crossing and on or around rail property. Saving lives is the mission that unites us.”
